Bilot Reinforces Its Big Data Presence by Becoming the First Hortonworks Systems Integrator Partner in Finland

Delivering Enterprise Hadoop Solutions Powered by the Hortonworks Data Platform


Bilot announced today that it has joined the Hortonworks Systems Integrator Partner Program to deliver big data solutions powered by the Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP). Hortonworks is the leading contributor to and provider of Apache™ Hadoop®. Bilot’s customers can now benefit from easier integration between Hadoop and SAP HANA platforms, both premier enterprise platforms for big data.


By joining the Hortonworks Systems Integrator Partner program, Bilot will further strengthen its ability to implement enterprise-level big data solutions including the Hortonworks Data Platform, the industry’s only 100-percent open source Hadoop distribution, explicitly architected, built, and tested for enterprise-grade deployments.


Bilot’s current services enable customers to easily upgrade their data storage and data processing capacity for structured and unstructured data in big data installations on SAP HANA. The integration with Hadoop enables customers to seamlessly scale up as the amount of data collected, stored, and processed within their big data initiatives grows.


“Our partnership with Hortonworks boosts our capabilities to integrate our customers seamlessly with enterprise-level Hadoop in relation to big data initiatives on SAP HANA. As Hortonworks’ first integration partner in Finland and as forerunners in practical big data, we are thrilled to drive adoption of the Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP) and Hadoop in general in Finland,” says Jani Puroranta, Director of Business Information Solutions at Bilot.


Hortonworks Data Platform was built by the core architects, builders and operators of Apache Hadoop and includes all of the necessary components to manage a cluster at scale and uncover business insights from existing and new big data sources. With a YARN-based architecture, HDP enables multiple workloads, applications and processing engines across single clusters with optimal efficiency. A reliable, secure and multi-use enterprise data platform, HDP is an important component of the modern data architecture, helping organizations mine, process and analyze large batches of unstructured data sets to make more informed business decisions.


“We welcome Bilot to the Hortonworks Systems Integrator Partner Program and look forward to working with them to provide data-driven applications powered by HDP for our joint customers,” said John Kreisa, vice president of strategic marketing at Hortonworks. “Bilot’s long-standing experience delivering high-value enterprise solutions in Finland creates a natural expansion to add Hadoop integration services as companies of all sizes are adopting Hadoop to support their big data projects.”
